On Thursday, May 30, 2013, Chesapeake Energy donated two Chevy Silverado trucks for use in our Socially Responsible
Landscape Management Company. Julie H. Wilson, Chesapeake
Energy VP of Urban Development, took the keys off an oversized Chesapeake
Energy key chain and gave them to Major Ward Matthews to put onto an oversized
Salvation Army key chain. After that, The Salvation Army landscaping crew
unloaded equipment from the trailers and performed landscaping work at the
Chesapeake Energy facility.
The Salvation Army landscaping company
is a social enterprise that gives homeless people jobs and job training. The
workers live in a Salvation Army homeless shelter until they save enough money
to live on their own. The goal is to get people trained and provide them a work
history so they can get another job making a higher income.
